Section 32 And Ss Disability Benefits

Postby Bronsonn » Sun Dec 04, 2016 5:50 am

Can a section 32 w/c settlement affect my social security disabilty payments?

ANSWER: Marie, you need to ask this question of your w/c attorney.  If you don't have one, you should.  Workers compensation is strictly a state matter.   However, there should be a provision in the settlement that will work to spread out the impact of the settlement over time, and reduce and impact on your payments.

I hope this helps,

A section 32 settlement is a lump sum payment so they won['t be spread over time. My question WAS will that lump sum payment affect my Social security disability payments? Please respond Thank you

I understood your question; most w/c settlements are lump sum.  The language in the agreement is what "spreads out" the impact of the payment, not spreads out the payment itself. What the language is intended to do is to say:  this is how long this money will compensate her for and thus lowers the impact of the money itself on your ssd.  But, you really need your attorney to explain how this will take place in your state.

I hope this helps you,
